Park the Hate in Charleston

hateXchange (Organizing partner, 10%)

Once upon a time, in a small German town called Wunsiedel, locals found a unique and funny way to deal with the neo-Nazis rallying in their streets. They made them march against their own cause. For every meter the neo-Nazis marched, they raised money towards programs fighting Nazis. They called it Germany’s most involuntary walkathon. hateXchange is the official American counter-part to those organizers, re-writing the rules to counter-protest hate, bigotry and xenophobia in a humorous, creative and peaceful way. 

For Charleston Parks the Hate, hateXchange's parent organization, C.H.A.N.G.E. is serving as the charity-in-chief. They will recive all donations and redirect 90% of the funds to the causes listed below.

hateXchange is the only charity on the Charleston Parks the Hate steering committee and helping to organize. The other charities were selected to receive donations solely because of their proven track records of excellent work combatting hate and standing up to unjust practices and institutions. 

Human Rights Watch (Recipent, 30%)

Human Rights Watch exposes human rights abuses like torture, violence against women, and child exploitation. In order to maintain their independence, they accept no money from any government. They rely solely on the generosity of people like you to defend human rights.

Life After Hate (Recipient, 30%)

Life After Hate, Inc was created in 2011 by former members of the American violent far-right extremist movement. Through powerful stories of transformation and unique insight gleaned from decades of experience, they serve to inspire, educate, guide, and counsel. Whether working with individuals who wish to leave a life of hate and violence or helping organizations (community, educational, civic, government, etc.) grappling with the causes of intolerance and racism, Life After Hate works to counter the seeds of hate.

Charleston Area Charities (Recipients, 30%)

The steering committee has also selected three well-respected grassroots charities in Charleston that benefit our community through services that support at-risk pregnant and parenting women, current and former inmates, and communities that have experienced decline due to lack of investment. Because these organizations are small, Charleston's genteel traditionalism is legendary, and the local political climate is complex, we have chosen not to share their names on this page.
